If you aren’t following Carrie Fisher (former Princess, now General Leia in the Star Wars franchise) on Twitter, then stop what you’re doing and hit the follow button, because I promise you, you won’t be disappointed. From her constant Twitter rivalry with Star Trek icon William Shatner, to her hilarious sense of humor (definitely NSFW), to the plethora of photos of her adorable French Bulldog, Gary.
In fact, Gary was the focus of the latest photo Fisher recently tweeted out, although he definitely was not the most important part of the photo.
The photo was taken in London, at Pinewood studios, where Episode VIII is currently being filmed. As you can see, on the back of Carrie Fisher’s chair, and right above Gary’s head, is the working title for Star Wars Episode VIII: SPACE BEAR. Humorous, no?
Now, this is nothing new as Disney’s other massive cash cow — Marvel’s Avengers — had a working title of Group Hug, and J.J. Abrams’ Cloverfield worked under the title, Cheese. Star Wars has famously done this before: Return of the Jedi worked under the title of Blue Harvest.
Sound off! We want to hear from you: What do you think of the working title for the film? How about the Panda logo in the Star Wars Episode VIII logo? What about SPACE BEAR? Let us know in the comments and on social media.
